care instructions

To extend the life of your products and to comply with warranty requirements a simple, regular maintenance program should be implemented.

The location of your product can affect its longevity. The effects of ultraviolet light, atmospheric pollution, dirt, grime and airborne salt deposits can all accumulate over time and should be removed or rotated at regular intervals.

Placing larger furniture items where they can touch external walls can create moisture build-up, and placing it too close to radiators, heaters and gas or wood fires can increase the risk of scorching damage or discolouration.

Timber requires a bit of love, care and maintenance and we recommend polishing your timber products every 3 to 6 months. We like to use a natural liquid beeswax polish because it restores and maintains the furniture's natural shine. Make sure the surface is free of dust before you start. If unsure, please follow the directions of the polish you purchase. If correctly applied, timber treatments will extend the life of your timber, whilst make the timber more attractive and prevent it from warping or splitting.

Keep out of direct sunlight: Where possible, keep items out of direct sunlight as it can dry out and warp timber.

Keep dry: Extended exposure to moisture can deteriorate timbers.
Leather should be polished every 2 weeks with a natural polish such as beeswax to keep leather soft and protected. Beeswax will also provide an element of protection from water. Light scuffs can be reduced by rubbing beeswax over the affected area. Avoid fully immersing leather in water. Dry naturally, away from direct sunlight.

Do not bleach, soak, or tumble dry.
Marble is very porous and reacts, on contact, with any acid so special care must be taken when handling marble. Use a natural, light soap or marble cleaner for deeper cleaning. If dust or other debris has accumulated on the marble, dilute a gentle dish soap in a little warm water and use a soft cloth to clean.

Never use vinegar on marble and avoid using acidic or abrasive cleaners.
Frosted glass, is a fragile material but doesn't require maintenance, aside from general cleaning. An abrasive sponge can be used to remove stains if the glass is very dirty. Alternatively, a window cleaner and a lint-free cloth can also be used to remove dust or fingerprints.
Bronze will arrive with a bright finish but will oxidise and darken over time to reveal a distinctive patina. Simply use a metal polish to restore a like-new finish.

Please note that slight variations can occur from piece to piece. Variations may include slight pour ripples or surface pitting which have been incurred during the production process.
Brass will arrive with a bright finish but will oxidise and darken over time to reveal a distinctive patina. Simply use a metal polish to restore a like-new finish.

Please note that slight variations can occur from piece to piece. Variations may include slight pour ripples or surface pitting which have been incurred during the production process.
Powder coating is one of the most durable coatings available and does not require much maintenance.  However, as a general rule cleaning should take place every three months. In areas where pollutants are more prevalent, such as beachfront houses and industrial or geothermal areas, then a cleaning program should be carried out on a more frequent basis ie, every one to two months.

Carefully remove any loose surface deposits with a wet sponge. Use a soft brush (non-abrasive) and a dilute solution of a mild detergent to remove dust, salt and other deposits.

Do not use solvents.
